Question:

I am trying to write a paper for my high school English class, and I am having a terrible time making sure my paper is written in 3rd person. I do not understand what my teacher means by this, or what words to use.

Answer:

Third person point of view is writing as someone looking in on the situation/someone who is not there - you would use pronouns like he, she, they, and it. For third person, you will never use the terms "I" or "me". A specific example of a sentence in 3rd person would be: "THEY completed THEIR test and left the classroom quietly." The same sentence in 1st person would be "WE completed OUR test and left the classroom quietly."

Question:

I am trying to research about current market trends and projected market growth for the Alaskan fishing industry for a paper for my Economics class, and I am not having much luck. What would be the best way to search for this?

Answer:

While you can search anywhere, the language you use while searching is what is the most important - specifically Boolean operators. Boolean operators are specific words that help search engines understand exactly what you are looking for, and bring you back the most concise results. Boolean operators work in any search function - both on Google/Bing type searching, and within specific resources/databases that your school might offer. The best way to search for your topic would be to use the AND and OR boolean operators as follows: Alaskan fishing industry AND (Market Growth OR Market Trends).

Question:

How would I cite a portion of a quoted phrase within the sentence of my paper, in APA style?

Answer:

Proper citation of a portion of a quoted phrase in APA style is as follows: (example) Though the research to date points at more of a correlational relationship than a causal one, according to Brooks (2018), "the overuse of screens seems to be associated with negative health outcomes, including depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem" (p. 2). Please note that a full citation for this article MUST be included in the reference list at the end of the paper.
